Arthro-Pod EP 115: Bed bugs in poultry houses with Maria Gonzales-Morales

At the National Conference on Urban Entomology in May, Jody was inspired by Maria Gonzalez-Morales, a grad student from North Carolina State University, and asked for a chance to interview her! She graciously jumped to the mic and the two of them talked about how urban pests have an impact on agriculture. Maria has spent her time during her PHD studying insecticide resistance and in this interview discusses her work specifically with bed bugs in poultry farms. Maria also talks about her dream for the future, which involves creating an inclusive place for Hispanics to learn and be impowered by the information generated from the entomological research around the world. Take a listen. You won’t be disappointed. 

Maria and her national award! Congratulations to her!!
